Powell will go straight into the side
Sheffield Wednesday have signed former Derby captain Daryl Powell.

Powell has joined the Owls on an 18-month contract after being released by Birmingham City, and will go straight into the starting line-up for Friday's Sheffield derby at Bramall Lane.

Owls boss Chris Turner was given room to move for Powell following the exit from Hillsbrough of striker Gerald Sibon to Dutch side Heerenveen.

Darryl is a very enthusiastic and committed footballer

Turner is looking to use the 400,000 saved in Sibon's wages to make further additions to an Owls' squad which has won three of its last four Division One matches to move off the bottom of the table.

The Owls' boss said: "Darryl is a very enthusiastic and committed footballer.

"He has vital experience and many good years in front of him.

"He has an infectious personality on the training ground and on the field. I hope that will spread to the rest of the squad."
